1978 - 1980 The studies

After a few months of painting, I accepted to participate to an exhibition in Amsterdam.

The success and encouragements of the visitors persuade me to continue with an exhibition at the workplace.

At first, it was a totally irrational decision, because, for months, professional artists
did not sale anything. Finally, the reactions were very trenches. My surprise was great to see that my paintings do not leave indifferent.

I had just discovered the fundamental principle of the creator: make something new !

The commercial success was unexpected.
